Today, my parents continue comparing me to my "perfect" friend. He smokes dope, is a compulsive thief, and has gone to juvie numerous times. I'm passing school with flying colors and have never been in any trouble with the law. Apparently I should be more like him. FML

Or maybe they do its like my mom always say "only compare yourself to the good in other people" she uses that to compare my bad to they're good but never the other way around

Sometimes parents only see what they wanna see and ignore all the good. Sorry op. Don't let it get to you. You know you're doing great so just keep doing you.

Parents shouldn't criticize their children by comparing them to any of their friends. Parents who do that may as well say they'd rather have the friend as their child instead of their actual child.

Apparently your parents don't know either you or your "perfect friend". Crazy thing is, they probably won't believe you if you told them who your friend really is! ?
